Thank you to Jo and William for their invaluable help in judging all of the entries. Lilyana is such a worthy winner and I absolutely loved wearing her dress."

With such tough competition at such high standards, the judges also selected first and second runners-up, which were awarded to Josie Smith and Francisco Aguilar respectively.
